    Ok, you guys have been really helpful, hopefully this will be my last post on the subject.

    I have decided to order the 992 in white, something that you think would be simple. But there are 4 different codes (at least) for white and I can only find pictures of 2 of them.

    112t = bone color
    906t = warm white
    B34t = milk (FW14)
    2001t = clean white (SS14)

    And pictures of different leathers in the same color code look different or different pictures of the same leather will look different because of lighting. Perhaps I am overthinking all of this and I should just choose one, but I like the make the most informed decision possible.

    From what I gather, the 906t, which is the one I posted earlier, is slightly off white with an warm almost yellowish tint. For the others I can't find reliable pictures and the names aren't really revealing at all. If someone has pictures of any of them that would be great. I imagine milk is hard/impossible to come by if it is only fw14.

    Alright after doing a little more research, here is my conclusion. Let me know if you all agree.

    112t/bone - off white (grey tint)
    906t/warm white - off white (yellowish or sand tint)
    2001t/clean white - bright ass pure white
    B34t/milk - TBD/no one knows/hasn't been released yet

    Really need someone's help:

    Does anyone have info on how CCP's AM/2521SX tornado fit? I think it's the 2009 model.

    The office advised me it fits TTS and should take CCP 6, but everywhere else i've read (here and sz), it's generally taken that the model runs at least half size large.

    For reference, I wear EU 40 guidi backzips, 40 for SLP sneakers, 39 for Lanvin sneakers

    Nice to see a 2009 tornado can still be made- CUBA or COIL?

    Thanx for that, cleared it up :D

    Um, I was offered 'LUC-PTC' which also kinda confused me. I did google, but apparently both LUC and COIL PTC are both object dyed horse cordovan (?)

    different batches of leather- more-less the same but each had their own distinct characteristics

    example would be-

    JUICY-PTC (CALF)
    vs
    KALB-PTC (CALF)

    ** JUICY was said to be superior is every way. Thicker too I believe.

    oh this discussion again..

    as far as I know, Simone really was in charge for some of cd footwear and Maurizio has put his famous "Who? Simone? never worked with that guy" for his very personal reasons back in 2008.

    Who cares? If you like the shoes then buy them or enjoy the pictures. This endless intrigue into welts, leather quality, who worked for who, and who ripped off who is tiresome and pure layman decadence.

    exactly. niche market is still the market and it will feed the masses with lore and legends as long as the masses will be interested in. want to double your pricing? add some story.

    In some cultures/practices, it is expected that the student surpass the master...regardless of that, it remains our choice to buy what we like. And right now, for me, Simone's boots are looking fantastic. As are Alessio's (and who is his "Master?").
